This week, I am pleased to introduce Dr. Aleks Radojcic D.N.M., R.N.C.P., R.H., P.H. who will guest blog for me and share his thoughts on cleansing and why you should do it.
Spring is at our door. It can symbolize for us new beginnings, waking up from a winter slumber, shedding of old clothing, letting go of old ideas, feelings of resentment, the desire to get into better shape, embracing new opportunities in life and so on.
Our physical body needs a tune-up just like our car needs one preventively in order to get better mileage, and reduce repair costs. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the primary organ for cleansing in spring is the liver, but the other organs of elimination can also be cleansed/detoxified for additional health benefits as well.
We collect toxins because we are exposed to thousands of environmental chemicals. Some sources of toxins include water, air, food, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, chem-trails, electromagnetic pollution, etc…
These toxins collect in the body and often clog up some of the major channels of elimination – liver/gall bladder, kidneys/bladder, large intestine, lungs, skin and lymphatic system. Cleansing the body of metabolic waste and environmental toxins is critical to regain health and vitality, while preventing premature aging and degeneration of body, mind and soul.
Many popular holistic clinics in the western world, where patients are treated for “Incurable dis-eases,” put them through an extensive cleanse/detox program, with vegetable juice diet to help bring good nutrition and much needed alkalinity to the body.
Aside from body toxins, other reasons for feeling unwell may include the body’s deficiency of minerals, vitamins and other nutrients. This is largely due to the fact that the soil where many plants grow nowadays is mineral deficient. Our bodies in turn are minerals deficient because of the lack of it in the food. If we use supplements to fill the gap for these deficiencies, and do not cleanse preventatively, our system will not be able to well absorb vitamins, minerals and amino acids supplementation.
The importance of body cleansing was well stated from by a pioneer in cancer research, Dr. Max Gerson. In his book “A Cancer Therapy- Results of 50 Cases” he said: “In order to initiate healing, the first and constant care of a physician is to detoxify the body.” We know now that if both metabolic waste and accumulated toxins are regularly flushed out, and the cells are hydrated and nourished, they can retain their vibrancy indefinitely.
What other types of cleansing should we consider?
In the last twenty years, a number of holistic doctors have discovered other culprits that may impede our health and vitality. A few of these culprits are parasites and Candida. Practitioners and authors like: Rev. Hanna Kruger, “Parasites the Enemy within,” Dr. Hulda R. Clark, “The Cure for All Cancers,” “The Cure for All Diseases,” Skye Weintroub, N.D. “The Parasite Menace” and others, have discovered that parasites may mimic symptoms of many dis-eases, and as such are often improperly diagnosed by mainstream doctors. People in North America and the rest of western world have thought that parasites are primarily caught when traveling abroad to some warmer climates, but according to W.H.O., 50% of the world’s population may have some parasites in their bodies. On a recent episode (March 20th) of Dr. Oz, two doctors that are experts in parasitology, commented that 60 million Americans may have parasites in their bodies.
Even Candida/fungus has been suggested as a cause of many cancers. Dr. Simonchini in his book “Cancer is a Fungus” suggests that use of baking soda has helped to eliminate fungus from the body and achieve good results in cases of some “Incurable dis-eases.
Shouldn’t we all benefit by doing some preventative body cleansing program?
There are many different cleansing products and programs available in the marketplace. Some are three, some seven, most fourteen, and a few thirty days long. I believe that short cleanses yield only short-lived results. Take your time and do it slowly.
What May you Experience During Cleansing?
You may not experience anything unusual, or you may even feel increased energy and vitality. You may require less sleep. Or, you may, at some point during the cleanse, experience some unpleasant symptoms. The unpleasant symptoms are characteristic of what is known as a healing crisis, retracing, detoxification process, also known as “Hering’s Law of Cure”.
A healing crisis is a natural consequence of toxins removal. During a cleansing program, toxins are released from storage sites in the tissues and cells of the body and dumped into the bloodstream for elimination through the liver, kidneys, bladder, lungs, skin, and colon. These toxins have been stressing the organs and creating unpleasant symptoms, related to old health issues, and are brought again to the surface, before the body releases them.
Healing crisis symptoms may include nausea, headaches, sleepiness, fatigue, diarrhea, colds, swelling, pain, ear infections, boils or skin eruptions. The length of the healing crisis will depend on the amount of toxins your body needs to eliminate – from a few hours, to a few days, and in very rare cases symptoms may hang around as long as a week.
Symptoms should inspire your gratitude because it is, in a way, your body talking to you. At some point during the cleanse or after, you will start feeling better than before and will feel grateful that you have finally taken the responsibility of your health into your own hands.
